Hello my question is witch carriers are the head carriers and witch are the daughter carriers/partnerships ??
I was wondering witch one those are ???
I have heared that's are VERIZON and VODAFONE
because i have seen that (on tv) last year with the formula 1 in austin texas with the VODAFONE McLAREN MERCEDES F1team
that's had with that's race a VERIZON sponsorship on the car
So i was wondering is there more carriers or partnerships ???

Deutsche Telekom is the parent company of T-Mobile USA, and EE UK (T-Mobile UK+Orange UK), and other worldwide carriers.
Koodo Mobile is a subsidiary of Telus Mobility (Canada)
Fido is a subsidiary of Rogers Wireless (Canada)
Virgin Mobile Canada is a subsidiary of Bell Mobility
TracFone Wireless (U.S. provider) is an almost-fully owned subsidiary of América Móvil (Mexican company)
These are the ones I can think of right now.
Edit: here's one more. MetroPCS was acquired by T-Mobile USA.Sent from my jail cell using a corrupt prison warden

Vodafone holds 40% of Verizon. And operates in most regions of the world through partnerships. The world's largest carrier I believe.Judge most Tech Articles by the comments it received, not by what the author is saying! Gets to the truth every time!

Sprint has Boost Mobile.
Outside of that, all other "minor" carriers in the US are considered MVNO (Mobile Virtual Network Operator) which essentially means a separate company provides the brand service, but utilizes one of the Big 4's network for actual voice/text/data. Every MVNO I can think of is pay-as-you-go/prepaid/no-contract (at least in the US).
For instance, Virgin Mobile USA is a subsidiary of Virgin, but they utilize Sprint's network. Virgin Mobile USA would be considered the MVNO.
SimpleMobile uses TMobile's network (which I believe is owned by TMo but is suppose to sell it off to TracFone).
Cricket uses Sprint's network.
And I believe Straight Talk uses a all four of Verizon, Sprint, T-Mo and AT&T's networks.
Page Plus uses Verizon.
There are dozens more MVNO's in the US, but those are the main ones.
